Much respect to the Bruno Mars camp!!! The NO RIVAL "Shooting Star" shirt is being worn by Bruno Mars' Tour Manager, Derek, in a recent webisode on the Bruno Mars site. Check the video at the 1:23 mark...
NO RIVAL was recently featured on an episode of Adobo Nation. Adobo Nation is a weekly magazine talk program that seamlessly blends elements of news and lifestyle topics relevant to Filipino-Americans living in the US. It is the one-stop pop-culture program with a Filipino-American twist. The staff made us feel really comfortable on the set. A big thank you to Adobo Nation for inviting us on the show!
In the episode we feature apparel and accessories from our most recent season. These new items will be available at http://norival.com this week.
This is extremely humbling coming from one of the most well-respected artists in the game. I remember purchasing any and all DJ Neil Armstrong mixtapes from boutiques on both coasts. His mixtapes illustrate the beauty of hip hop music and the art's innovative use of sampling early on. In his mixtapes, you have the opportunity to hear where the artists sample and inspiration originated from. I actually gave my girl a "Warmfuzzy" CD a few years back as part of her Valentine's Day gift...furreal. It kept me from having to put together a mixtape myself. Plus, I can't do it as well as DJ Neil Armstrong, so I figured, why even try.
The mixtapes are creative, sentimental, humorous, and bring a smile to peoples faces upon every listen. DJ Neil Armstrong is not ashamed to include the guilty pleasures either, whether it's New Edition or Hall & Oates. Really...it's perfectly fine...if it's good enough for your favorite hip hop artist to sample, well...
If you didn't happen catch his last ad campaign with Adidas, check it out...always an original.
Props to DJ Neil Armstrong for putting us on. If you want to learn more about him (as if you didn't already know), check out his site at http://www.djneilarmstrong.com.
AND...don't forget, the NO RIVAL site will be re-launching in November at http://norival.com. Until next time...
